2016 Trade Deadline Thread


A little under three and a half hours to to before this year's (non-waiver) trade deadline. Who do the Dodgers get?

Jay Bruce? (Maybe already on his way to the Mets.)
Matt Moore?
Chris Archer?
Chris Sale?
Chris Pratt?
Chris Evans?
Chris Hemsworth?

Discuss your elation and/or disappointment below!

I predict a move for a low-profile SP to fill Norris' spot. Puig stays, as I can't imagine this FO selling low

Puig for Shields rumor? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Orel said...

Twitter says Mets close on Bruce. Also rumblings about Puig for Shields

Hideo Nomo said...

*waits for DAMMIT*

Orel said...

Shields w/CHW: 4-6, 5.17

Orel said...

all right...DAMMIT

Orel said...

He averaged about 5.5 IP per start there

spank said...

Source: #Dodgers and #Athletics have made a trade - Jharel Cotton to Oakland. Could be Reddick and/or Hill.

CATCH THEM ALL!

Hideo Nomo said...

Anyone know Reddick and Hill's Combat Power?

Oakland will be receiving a number of prospects from the Dodgers for Rich Hill and Josh Reddick. Jharel Cotton is not the deal's headliner.

Orel said...

UH OH

Frankie Montas

Frankie Goes to Oakland

NO NOT GRANT HOLMES TOO

Who's Grant Holmes again?

Hideo Nomo said...

The guy with the dope perm.

Orel said...

The next coming of Don Sutton?

MR.F said...

@Nomo, did it take an ultra ball to catch these guys?

Hideo Nomo said...

Ultra balls are bullshit. Everything breaks out of them.

MR.F said...

I got my first ultra balls yesterday. I'm trying not to use them

Orel said...

Same with great balls

Hideo Nomo said...

Great balls work pretty well for me. Ultra balls are straight trash. Can't go wrong with tossing a razz berry first.

QuadSevens said...

Chris Evans (Johnny Storm) would be a good pitcher for us. Who'd be able to hit his fireball?

"he Giants acquired reliever Will Smith from the Brewers" This is a direct affront to Joc's walk up music and I, for one, will not let this stand!

Orel said...

Just posted that video, Mr. F!

spank said...

less than an hour to to

Fred's Brim said...

Jesse Chavez? Is he as bad as his stats say he is?
I know Mike Bolsinger is almost useless these days but jeez.

Fred's Brim said...

I really hope we find something better for our bullpen. I don't think it's going to hold up and still doesn't feel very solid despite good numbers

Fred's Brim said...

Moore to SF?

MR.F said...

GAHHHH I killed my phone over lunch. I ran into a pointy thing. Now I have to go 2 days without Pokemon Go.

spank said...

Rosenthal reporting on the twitters that Puig has jumped the Dodgers ship. don't know how true that is but if so that's a wrap.

spank said...

apparently Puig got butt hurt that he was trade bait or be sent down. like i said don't know if this is confirmed but if so that's a wrap.

MR.F said...

=/

Tim Brown @TBrownYahoo

Sources: Yasiel Puig was instructed not to report to stadium or plane today and did not. Told he would be demoted to minors or traded.

Fred's Brim said...

So strange. I am sure somebody will get hurt again and he'll get called back up, but jeez, its not like he's hitting like AJ

MR.F said...

Seems like Tim Brown got it right. Puig wasn't being immature or butt hurt. He did as instructed. Rosenthal apparently apologized to Puig on Twitter on Puig was all no big deal.

Puig has struggled a lot this season on the field, but he does seem to really be trying to be a better person/teammate off the field.
